I admit. I did this once in hs. I (yes me, not my mom) took him immediately to the vet and the vet said he would have been dead with in days. He lived with us for 10 years until he died. I would have done it again. It is not the best thing to do, but in some situations I couldn't say no. I did warn the people that the dog would disappear if I saw the dog abused again (I watched one of their kids pick the dog up and throw him into a brick wall). I saw the abuse again and took him. He had a coat hanger stuck in his hair and became embedded into his skin.
